The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has issued a plea to its customers in Western Accra to exercise prudence in their water consumption, emphasizing the critical need to use water wisely to enhance supply to other areas.
The company disclosed that it is presently able to provide water to only approximately 60 percent of the customers it serves in Western Accra, a situation deemed inadequate.
In a statement released on November 3, GWCL attributed the ongoing water shortages in various parts of Accra to challenges faced at its Weija treatment plant.
The company’s communication revealed that the shortage in water supply resulted from technical issues at the Weija Treatment Plant, leading to diminished water volumes produced and causing low water pressure in some areas and irregular supply in others.
Stanley Martey, Chief Manager of PR & Communications at GWCL, affirmed the company’s commitment to addressing the situation and urged consumers to utilize the available water judiciously, as doing so could lead to improvements in water pressure in different areas.
He emphasized the significance of efficiently using the current water resources to meet the demands of the population in Accra, highlighting the pressing need for sustainable water management.
